Hey Pat--given the prospect of a Great Depression, I thought the above would be appropriate. It seems to have something to do with "native intelligence" so it may address the issue you raise.

I still don't get it. Does he want to be able to call people racist too, and he's jealous because he thinks that republicans can't get away with it?

To be honest, I haven't paid enough attention to have an opinion, but some how the Will Rogers quote seemed appropriate since you could apply it whatever your take on it (he's a dumb, or may be he's a dumb racist, or the folks he called out are dumb racists, or we're all just dumb asses for commenting on it or...).

If there is one thing I am confident about, it's my own ignorance.

thanks for mentioning will, since I have been trying to think who said that line...

being from western pa I was beginning to write on racism in the area and some old pirate jokes but thought better of it so I am returning to 69-01-17 santa barbara:

Dark Star > St. Stephen > The Eleven > Death Don't Have No Mercy then Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One > Cryptical Envelopment> Cosmic Charlie

69 began in fine fashion...pigpen totally smashed...and a really outstanding show...

That's the spirit! What better way to combat hatred and bigotry and ignorance but with a trip to my favorite institution of higher learning?! It really is a beautiful part of the country.

Thanks.
